NASHVILLE, May 20, 2014 /Christian Newswire
/ --Dr. Alveda King, niece of late civil rights leader Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., offers her new book, "King Rules-Ten Truths for You, Your Family, and Our Nation to Prosper," June 10. The book is a personal collection of hard-learned lessons, timeless truths and foundational principles for a more intentional, meaningful life.
Recognizing America's current ethics crisis, King counters the modern-day forces of moral drift and empty relativism with a lovingly crafted yet refreshingly blunt guide to establishing strong family values. Beginning with a vulnerable admission of her own wounds and wanderings, she presents ten core "rules" that have governed her family for generations while also inspiring revolutionary change in the world at-large.
Within each of these tenants King dispenses wise meditations on bedrock subjects including faith and family, peace and justice, education and civic life. With thoughtful conviction she also boldly tackles topics considered divisive in our postmodern world, from abortion and sexuality to gun control and marriage laws.
She comments, "I wrote the book because America needs to be saved from destruction. My elders taught me that only Jesus saves. We need to be rescued. Again, Jesus. God raises up men and women like MLK and my other family members for 'such a time as this.' In this day and time when moral turpitude is at its worse, we need a moral uplift and a new set of rules--or a return to the old ones, however we look at it."
"King Rules" is a page-turning narrative that blends eyewitness history with grandmotherly wisdom. And as J. C. Watts writes in the foreword, the book is "more than Alveda's story, it's an account of the beliefs that redirected the course of a nation, that left us a legacy, and that hopefully will guide us again."
"King Rules" will be available via Thomas Nelson in hardcover and eBook. For information, visit www.kingrulesbook.com
